Bob Greene discusses his book "Billion Dollar Baby"
Nov. 20, 1974
Journalist Bob Greene joins Studs Terkel to talk about his book “Billion Dollar Baby” and about his experience on tour with rock and roll band Alice Cooper. Greene talks about the band’s inception and their grotesque performance style, and comments on society’s (particularly the youth’s) acceptance and adoration of this band despite their violent message, and the irony of that adoration. Studs connects the band’s success to the society’s acceptance to the Vietnam War.
